44-Surah Ad-Dukhan ( The Smoke ) 28
    Thus. And We caused to inherit it another people.
    كَذَٰلِكَ ۖ وَأَوْرَثْنَاهَا قَوْمًا آخَرِينَ

    Quran's Tafhim ( explanation)

    *24) Hadrat Hasan Basri says that "others" here implies the children of Israel, whom Allah made heirs of the land of Egypt after Pharaoh's people, and Qatadah says it implies the other people who inherited Egypt after the people of Pharaoh, for the Histories do not make any mention that the Israelites ever returned to Egypt after the exodus and inherited it. This same point has been disputed by the later commentators also. (For a detailed discussion, see AshShua'ra: 57-59 and the E.N.'s on it).
